Gigantspinosaurus



dinosaur picture gigantspinosaurus


Scientific Classification
 
Arguably
nomen nudum
Some scientists consider this a nomen nudum - a scientific name for which an adequate description has not been published
 
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Sauropsida
  Superorder Dinosauria
  Order Ornithischia
  Suborder Thyreophora
  Infraorder Stegosauria
  Genus Gigantspinosaurus
Gigantspinosaurus was a herbivore (plant-eater) that lived in China during the late Jurassic period, about 160 million years ago. It is the earliest known member of the Stegosauria (the Infraorder tha includes Stegosaurus and Kentrosaurus among others).

The creature's name means "giant-spined lizard". The "giant" in the name refers to the animal's comparatively large shoulder spines - Gigantspinosaurus had very large shoulder spines, but the bony plates on its back were relatively small.

Gigantspinosaurus about 13 feet (4 meters) long, and probably weighed around 500 pounds (225 kilograms). It was thus considerably smaller than many of its later relatives such as Stegosaurus and Kentrosaurus.

The first fossils of Gigantspinosaurus were found in the Sichuan province of China in 1992. These included a partial skeleton that was missing only the hind feet, tail and skull (except for the lower jaw). However, for a number of years, some scientists in the West considered "Gigantspinosaurus" to be a "nomen nudum" (a scientific name that failed because an adequate description had not yet been published). Since articles published by Tracy L. Ford, and by Susannah C. R. Maidment and Guangbaio Wei, both in 2006, much more information about the animal has been available in the West. One interesting aspect of these new articles is that in her article, Tracy L. Ford argued that previous reconstructions of Gigantspinosaurus had attached the shoulder spines upside-down, and the spines should actually point upwards ending higher than the top of the animal's back.

  • CollectA is determined to bring us figures that are out of the ordinary. In 2012, the company added the prey series to their line with the introduction of a Dead Triceratops figure complete with open wounds, blood, and bite marks. The first of this type of figure in any major toy company. They've since added the Stegosaurus and T-Rex models.
  • It is hard to imagine the mighty T. rex on the other end of a fight or hunt: the loser or even the prey. Of course, this is not how nature works. Truth is, even the biggest, most powerful, and most fearsome predator will eventually meet its match.
  • All CollectA products are individually hand crafted with only the finest materials and rigorously tested to ensure they meet the highest safety standards. Figure measures: 7.3 x 3.6 x 1.6 inches.

CollectA is determined to bring us figures that are out of the ordinary. In 2012, the company added the prey series to their line with the introduction of a Dead Triceratops figure complete with open wounds, blood, and bite marks. The first of this type of figure in any major toy company. They've since added the Stegosaurus and T-Rex models. CollectA hasn't skimped on the gory details in bringing Tyrannosaurus Rex back to decomposing non-life. The T. rex corpse is fully feathered and curled up backward. The figure’s left side is virtually intact, although you can clearly see a huge bite wound on the neck and huge open wounds with vital organs clearly visible. It is hard to imagine the mighty T. rex on the other end of a fight or hunt: the loser or even the prey. Of course, this is not how nature works. Truth is, even the biggest, most powerful, and most fearsome predator will eventually meet its match. This beautifully sculpted, collectible figure from our Prehistoric Life Collection measures 7.3 x 3.6 x 1.6". Each prehistoric figure in our collection has been approved by archeologist Anthony Beeson, a well-respected expert in paleoimagery. All CollectA models are individually hand crafted to the highest standards and made with the finest and safest phthalate-free, lead-free materials.
